Birthday Celebration

Pretty Girl is turning 4 tomorrow, and we had a little party last night to celebrate the occasion.

She has always been very expressive and she really enjoyed opening her presents.  Her cousins enjoyed it too!

I think it is safe to say that she loved her princess dress, as she had to put it on immediately!

Happy Birthday Pretty Girl!  We love you to the moon and back again!

We had our family dinner tonight and it is amazing how different Baby looks in just 10 days.  She was 10 pounds 10 ounces on Tuesday, April 22nd, but I am sure she is over 11 pounds now.  Her eyes have gotten bluer and she can smile too.  She isn't jaundiced any more either.  She just gets cuter and sweeter every time I see her!

Their moms have been friends since elementary school....and now they had babies who are only nine weeks apart.  Nine weeks is a lot when they are this young, but it won't always be.

Easter 1998.  Time flies.  We went to a grad fundraiser for Jenelle tonight.....she is graduating from high school in June.  It just doesn't seem possible.  They grow up way too fast!

A few pictures

Easter Weekend was lots of fun.  Grandson and Sweetheart went on a scavenger hunt and they loved their clues to find their Easter baskets.  Grandson just couldn't stop giggling all the way through, and thought that the Easter Bunny was very clever.  They found eggs in the backseat of the car, and also in the fridge!

These boys had a great Easter too, and it was cute to listen to all the children talk about their Easter egg hunts on Tuesday when they all came back to Daycare.  

And here is the best Easter present of all.  Norah Mary was born on Easter Sunday....she weighed 7 pounds 3 ounces and was 19 inches long!  Congratulations Kristy and Rich!!!

Fletcher was born 9 weeks before Norah and their Moms are very good friends with each other and Miracle #3.  #3 is due in 11 weeks, so all of these little ones will be friends too.  That is so special!  For everyone!

6 months

I am almost 2 weeks late with posting this.  Oh dear. Great-nephew #2 was 6 months old on the 10th of April.  He weighs 21 pounds 8 ounces and is 27.5 inches long.  He is just getting cuter by the day!  He is teething right now.....he has actually been teething for a while.....and is not impressed.  His mommy says that he has a low threshold for pain, so he's a bit needier than usual.  Soon, baby boy, soon.

My two beautiful great-nephews.  6 months old and 3 1/2 years old!

Kid Party!

Grandson invited his friends to celebrate with him today.  Turning 6 is just a whole lot of fun for a couple of weeks!  He and his little school buddies went to Captain Kids in Langley and they ran around, had pizza and cake, and enjoyed their afternoon.  

I have to chuckle at Sweetheart who was sooooooooo excited for her brother. But she really just does her own thing. She spent a lot of time in the toddler area and was quite content to sit in this little truck for the longest time.......She just loves to play!

Four little blessings

Here they are.  All four blessings together.  Not an easy task to get them all sitting together and all looking at the camera.  I bribed them with a cookie.....they are almost 4, almost 3, 6, and 4 weeks old. I love them all to the moon and back again!

Our newest little blessing is four weeks old already.  Look at those blue eyes, hey?  Her sister had them too when she was wee, and they didn't stay.  So there is a good chance that hers won't either, but you never know....

And she had to show off her pretty dress!  All dressed up for Easter weekend!

Little Bunnies

Miracle #3 made bunny ears with her children yesterday.  And they hunted for eggs as well.  She inspires me.  

So we did exactly the same thing today.  They were all happy little bunnies and really enjoyed their morning.  Well, everyone except Tai.  He just didn't want to wait until after lunch to open his eggs, so I was surprised that he wanted to get into the group shot with his friends. Poor planning on my part, as we went to the library and then had our egg hunt......silly me!

Tooth fairy is coming!

Grandson called me today to tell me his news!  He lost his first tooth at school today!  When I saw him yesterday, it seemed pretty wiggly but I figured he still had a few days before it actually came out.  I was wrong.  So was the dentist. He forecasted it would be out by his birthday when he saw him last month.  Only 12 days over......not really too bad if you think about it.  Anyway, Grandson was quite excited to put his tooth under his pillow tonight!

I think this is interesting

It's Palindrome Week.  I have always had a fascination with numbers, and I think this is kinda neat. It also works with 4/10/14, 4/11/14 and 4/12/14, but technically those days aren't in this week.

So this means that I am comfortable and warm......

3 weeks 4 days old

Our newest blessing is growing up way too fast.  She came over with her family tonight and she spent the first half an hour sleeping in her carseat.  I love looking at her and she didn't even flinch when I kept taking her picture!

But her Daddy came and took her out....he told me that I could have, but she looked so peaceful. I love watching the two of them together.  He loves her so very very much and it shows....

Dinner Date

This was my view at dinner tonight.  We went to The Kingfisher and I had a wonderful salad of fried Brie, beets and butter lettuce with my salmon and crab cakes. We sat out on the patio and the sun was really warm.  It was really, really bright too!  

This was Hubby's view.  Mount Baker was a lot closer than it appears, and it is too bad that the old ferry docks are still there, but it sort of adds to the ambiance. He had a warm quinoa salad and steak, and he enjoyed it very much.  We came home to watch Saving Mr. Banks on VOD and we really liked it.  Happy 34th Anniversary to us!

Baseball in the rain

It is a perfect day for ducks. Rainy. Wet.  And for the last three days, these two ducks have set up camp in my neighbour's yard.  They come and go, but I don't understand why they don't just leave.

It is Opening Day for Baseball.  And the rain held off for pictures, but it didn't for the first game at 1 o'clock.  It stopped and started, and you can see me in the background in the dugout with Sweetheart. It didn't bother Grandson.  He LOVES baseball!

And from my perfect position in the dugout, I managed to actually get a pretty good snapshot.  Grandson was just admiring his hit....right out past 2nd base.  I think it is funny that they all watch their ball, and then they run to 1st base.  

This is what Sweetheart thinks of watching baseball in the rain.  She told me, "I don't like my brudders baseball game."  But you know, she may not have enjoyed herself as much as she will when the sun comes out, but she was a pretty good sport about it!  And trudging through the puddles wasn't all that bad, after all. You would have never known that by her facial expressions, though!
